Artist Residencies 

Open Studios Project
The Arts Village Rotorua
December 2013 to January 2014

As one of the Artist in Residence selected for the Open Studios Project, I spent 6 weeks in my studio painting, interacting with the public and showing my work in a Solo exhibition in Studio One at the Arts Village. My community art project 'Trade your Art' a rotating art exhibition was well received . People were invited to create a painting in my studio for display and choose some one else's to take home and enjoy. I initiated a collaborative project and invited the other Artists in Residence to contribute to a large collaborative painting which I gifted to the local primary school. During my Residency I also enjoyed tutoring Art workshops for children and adults.  

New Pacific Studios
Mt Bruce, Masterton 

October 2013​​

Nestled in the country side I spent time painting in the Cottage Studio. Inspiration flowed from my many visits to the Pukaha Mt Bruce National Wildlife Centre only 2km away. I entered the Eketahuna Museum Photo Competition and a completed a body of work of 100 photos. I gifted these photos to the Eketahuna Museum as a visual record of the local people and places.
